In September 2008 Linda Miller Savitt received a defense verdict in Saenz v. Backbone Communications, Inc. The plaintiff claimed she had been terminated as a result of using the “kin care” statute, Labor Code § 203, which provides that an employee may use one-half of their sick time for family related incidents. After a 4 day trial the jury deliberated for 3 hours and returned a verdict in favor of the defendant that Backbone Communications had not wrongfully terminated the plaintiff.
